Preventative Peg Breaking Mod for Earthrise Grapple

Hereís a quick fix for Earthrise Voyager Grapple to prevent any peg snapping issues when transforming from alt mode to bot mode.

I stumbled across this on TFW2005ís review page. While it doesnt look to be happening to every copy, I thought Id still share this for anyone looking for a preventative measure to any possible breakages.

Page 1, about half way down, shows where things can go awry: https://www.tfw2005.com/boards/threa...class.1188437/

For me the simplest method was a combo of lightly sanding down the pegs (that connect from the crane portion) AND carefully shaving open the peg holes (under each foot) as well. All the while checking the connection to ensure it doesnt become too loose. Took about 10 minutes total.

Hope this helps

Those pegs look like crap, I wouldn't sand them, that would just make them more fragile, I'd go with making the holes a tad larger.

At the same time, drop some epoxy in those empty holes of the pegs, possibly adding some under for extra support.

But I'm skipping this figure as it's ridiculously out of scale with everything in the series.

Yeah, seriously, don't touch the pegs; just widen the holes.
Phrasing.

I'll hold off until Inferno.

It is out of scale in alt mode, not in bot mode though. Even Optimus is out of scale if you are picky on their alt mode scale. We probably won't get a G1 looking Grapple that is in scale in both alt mode and bot mode after this release, perhaps have to wait another 10 years.
